The long awaited new album from one of this generations most controversial artists Tyler, the Creator is finally here. Coming off an Oscar win for his fifth album IGOR, Tyler switches up his sound for his sixth album. Tyler produced the album himself with some additional work from Jamie xx and Jay Versace. The album was also hosted by DJ Drama representing some of Tyler’s own nostalgia and fandom of early mixtapes of those such as Lil Wayne.
Now whether you are a fan or not, one cannot deny that Tyler is one of the best producers in the rap game and is one of the few artists today that continues to evolve in both lyrics and sounds. This album is less melodic than his previous album and relies much more on Tyler’s verses and rapping skills. The features on this album are very sporadic, but make for great listening pleasure due to the diversity in each of the artists. The album has features from 42 Dugg, Youngboy NBA, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Wayne, Domo Genesis, Brent Faiyaz, Lil Uzi Vert, and Pharrell.. Some of the stand out tracks include “LUMBERJACK”, ““MANIFESTO”, “LEMONHEAD” and “”HOT WIND BLOWS”. Tyler has also dropped music videos for “CORSO”, “WUSYANAME”, and “JUGGERNAUT”.
The album debuted number one on the Billboard 200 and it is no surprise why. The album is much different than anything that has come out thus far in 2021, and Tyler continues to cross boundaries and test his audiences. This is a feel good album that transitions from loud and rambunctious to soft and sweet, making it an album that has something for everyone. It is q must listen album, and arguably Tyler’s best album other than Flower Boy. Call Me If You Get Lost scores a 8.5/10 on the MF Scale.
